Leyla Zana, the first woman Kurdish MP to be elected to the Turkish Parliament in 1992, was impisoned in 1994 for 15 years for speaking in Kurdish in the Parliament. Kudret Gunes’ personal look at the life of Zana takes her to her birth-place, friends and exiled husband.
The portrait of a man whose fate shows how difficult it is to be a Kurd in exile today. Mehdi was the first Kurdish mayor of Diyarbakir, Turkey. He was elected in 1977 and has been one of the main protagonists in the history of the Kurds over the past thirty years. His dramatic story illustrates the chaotic history of those years during which he never ceased to fight for the recognition of his people's right to exist. He is now a political refugee in Sweden, where, he is trying to make a life for himself in a society which bears little resemblance to his own.
